Why don't you wait; watch

Watch your life pass you by

Watch your boyfriend leave

As you sit, again, in solitude

Why don't you wait; watch

Watch the seasons come and go

Wait for his return to you

As you binge on loss & negativity

Why don't you wait; watch

Watch your friends fall in love

Wait on the couch for some miracle

As though they're not that few

Why don't you wait; watch

Watch the clock tick and tock

Wait for the moment when things finally set in place

As though they will just happen

Why don't you wait; watch

Watch the world pass over

Wait for the train to appear

As though it will take you home

Why don't you wait; watch

Watch the birds fly north

Wait for the cold air to set in

As though the chill will finally wake you
